This hostel was brilliant. They have thought of everything to make your stay hassle free. The staff are SO helpful and friendly and couldn't do enough for me. Also, the breakfast is fantastic. Highly recommended.

I spent two nights in a dorm with three other friends at the Green Kiwi last weekend. When we arrived we did not expect much, due to the relatively cheap price but we were incredibly surprised when we walked in and were warmly welcomed by the kind and lovely staff. The environment is very pleasant and to our great surprise...

The 2 girls at the reception Bella and Lou are awesome and made our downtime enjoyable. Also internet is fast and computers are handy. Aircon in the rooms is great on a hot humid night and they sell cold beers at reception. Would stay again.

I stayed in a dorm room for four nights. It was a little bit disruptive, with people coming in and out all night, but otherwise quiet and clean. The bathrooms are plentiful and the wifi strong. The closest MRT stations aren't all that close and when it's so hot, the walk becomes a drag. But I soon discovers that the...

They definitely have one of the best breakfasts we had in a long time. Fresh fruit, unlimited toast with different choices of jam, Nutella etc and a good coffee! Was great! We enjoyed our stay there. The staff is really friendly. While the dorm rooms are pretty regular, the mattresses are very comfortable and the showers and toilets clean. We...

Good location, close to Little India and the subway station so easy to get about. Dorm room is standard although seems like beds are crammed as many into a room as possible leaving no room for luggage storage. We had problems with noisy, inconsiderate people during our stay but that's not the hostel's fault. The inclusive breakfast is very good,...

The hostel for hostel standards is pretty good. I have been travelling for a while now and stayed in around 20 hostels so I'm rather used to hostel life and this one was quite clean, it had a good breakfast which hardly any hostel offers, the showers were quite good and the beds were comfy. The staff are pleasant however...
